The opening night will see a stellar bill of acts deliver the goods on the Chris Glaba memorial stage, as the festival pays homage to their music loving friend, who sadly lost his battle with cancer last year, in the most fitting of manners.
Heading up the announcement is Grammy Award nominee, four-time International Dance Music Award winner and four time DJ Mag award winner, Sasha who is a timeless entertainer and selector of the highest order, and will doubtless kick of proceedings with a bang.
James Zabiela might have taken a few years off from delivering new music, but the electronic music world is still catching up with him anyway. The British DJ is one of dance music's premiere technical wizards, and he turns CDJs into a bona fide instrument in a way that only a handful of DJs have ever been able to. It was James's appearance at the opening weekend of A Wing that cemented the festival organisers' eternal love for the prison, encouraging them to consistently expand their creative boundaries.
Support for this mammoth lineup comes from James Ryan / Stanger-Audio, the North West pioneers of events in strange places, Freeze Events own Jemmy and Jaded's queen of the mammoth after hours sets Ceri.
With a Hospitalitydnb main stage and a rawcus Dell Stage still to be announced this looks set to be an extraordinary night of music in the heart of Lancaster.
